Does anyone have a good source for the metal tubes used in combination with somfy motors to create a electric masking system? I am looking to create a horizontal masking system and have the pdf on how to create one but it mentions a local metal shop to get the tubes. Does anyone know of any national or local to DFW area businesses that sell these types of metal tubes. They are 1.25 to 1.5 inches in diameter and should be made of aluminum or other non-ferrous metal.

Thanks I should have mentioned that I have 120 inch screen that will require a 105-110 inch long tube. I found some on av-outlet but they only ship up to 105". I sent them an email about pricing on longer tubes and the freight charges.
